Steps for Flint residents to reduce bacteria in filtered water

A team of researchers from Michigan universities and hospitals has recommended strategies for Flint water customers to most effectively use the point-of-use water filters on their taps.

The recommendations go beyond filter manufacturers’ instructions. They advise users to flush the pipes and filters for longer periods of time each morning or after long periods of not using their water.

The research team is co-led by the University of Michigan and Wayne State University, and includes faculty members from Michigan State University, Kettering University and the Henry Ford Hospital System.
